TV Guide has just released the first image of David Morrissey as The Governor from AMC’s The Walking Dead. The Governor will be introduced in Season 3 of the hit show.
The Governor, real name Philip Blake, is the vicious leader of the small town of Woodbury. He becomes one of Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) greatest enemies in the series and brings with him more death than the walker’s themselves could. I’d tell you more but then the walkers would have to eat me…and you!
Robert Kirkman, creator/executive producer on The Walking Dead had this to say regarding Season 3 and The Governor:
“Seeing The Walking Dead come to life on AMC has been a real thrill for me, obviously, and moving into Season 3 I’m even more excited than ever because now I feel like we’re really getting to ‘the good stuff…”Having The Governor in the mix is going to fundamentally change the show in all kinds of awesome and exiting ways. And David Morrissey totally rocks!”The Governor in the show is definitely going to be The Governor in the comic, ”I think that he’s definitely going to be a character that people love to hate and are absolutely entertained by, but also somewhat terrified of. He’s definitely going to be a very important character and a very nuanced character. We are not going to be watering him down.”
Season 3 of The Walking Dead Premieres on AMC this October.
